Re: Any old timers still around?

Well I think it is fair to say, that this board isn't as busy as it was back in the mid noughties.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Nope, not even close. When I joined up and during the era of Enterprise this place was one of the most happening boards on the Internet. And all our most skilled and glorious trolls are long gone, replaced by fools and idiots who probably couldn't argue with a bag of kettle chips without getting their butts whooped and being banned within the first couple of days.

Yeah, It was still fairly..active to the point where Misc was still kinda fun my first couple years after signing on. Honestly, TNZ kind of reminds me of Misc from few years back.

That's partly because this place isn't as fun as it was back then. I certainly don't post anywhere near as much as I used to. And whenever I do, I'm usually ignored, or shouted down for whatever reason, so I'm mostly in lurk mode these days.

One of the things I don't like about Message Boards in general is the sense of "Talking to yourself". There are times when I feel that here, and there's another board where I feel that all the time. I've been lurking more too.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I have to admit scrolling through the Misc thread I thought WTF? Post last thing you ate, what your watching/reading/brought et cetera? That is like old Lounge shit, not the fun Misc I remember where random topics if all sorts just bounced here and there and everywhere.

None of these threads make me anyway inclined to enter them. And they're certainly not fun. Dead boring I say. I really don't give a shit if somebody just ate a Little Debbie Cupcake or brought a Blu-Ray!

I have no access to TNZ so I have no knowledge what is behind that wall.

Re: Any old timers still around?

TNZ has been the "new misc" for so long now that it's really just the old misc.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Perhaps I should start a new thread with a poll to see the make-up of the current user vis-á-vis how long they've been here.

Less than a year
1-2 years
2-3 years

and so

Though i think the last option would be 10+ years.

I somehow suspect that it might lean towards people towards long serving members.

Just remember: more gratuitous nudity and diatribes against the Bilderbergers and Council on Foreign Relations, with a heavy emphasis on the nudity.

Consider yourself lucky. The stupidest thing I ever did here was access that "forum".

If I had the ability, I'd ban myself from it.

For several lifetimes.

If there's one thing I noticed about the TNZ forum (And it goes well with the "Old Misc" feel), it's how cliequy it's become. I go in there and notice if you have an ounce of conservativism in you, you will be blasted as a troll or something. Heaven forbid anyone post anything in there that talked good about Romney (And I thought there were good aspects about him). Also, there was one time when that Troll thread actually pissed me off. I had a thread in here (Misc) and got blasted for it in the troll thread. I didn't say it at the time, but if you're going to blast me for something, do it to me, not go run off to your "safe" forum like a coward.

There are things I miss about this forum but there are some good threads that pop up every now and then. I noticed for me now it's if I'm in the mood to post, I will really post. Most times I just lurk though.

Not necessarily. I've mentioned several times in there that I am a Republican and I have never been blasted for it.

You do have to be good at arguing your point, but that's true anywhere, really.

Well, I didn't get that sense, but I'll take your word for it. Of course just popping in there from time to time I can only go by observation, and I'm willing to admit that it might be a little harsh.
